Donations make it happen!
Curious what you could donate? Here are some ideas:
The bike in your garage that hasn't been ridden in years.
The jacket in your closet that doesn't fit right.
The tent that your family outgrew.
The cross country skis your kids outgrew.
The car rack that doesn't fit on your new vehicle.
The backpack you won that you'll never use.
The bike parts that came off when you upgraded.
These kinds of donations add up!
In June, 2015, alone, individuals donated more than $5,000 worth of items like these. A small contribution from each person adds up to a really big deal for us!
Bike and bike stuff
Donated bikes are really what keep us going. They are the lifeblood of our organization. We refurbish and sell bikes. We refurbish and donate bikes. We sell bike parts. We get people out on bikes.
We accept bike donations any time of day and any season. We accept bikes of any brand and any almost any condition. We accept bikes that are in decent condition or that are in need of minor repairs. If your bike has been run over by a car, probably can't use it. If your bike has been sitting outside for the last 5 winters, we probably don't want it either. If your bike has been sitting in a shed or garage with flat tires and you recall that it wasn't shifting right when you last rode it 3 years ago, we probably do want it.
You can drop off donations at any time. We can also arrange to come to you and pick up bikes. Email us to set it up.
We gladly accept donations of general outdoor gear. Tents, sleeping bags, camp stoves, lanterns, knives, etc. We accept donated gear of any age and condition. If it isn't sell-able as is, maybe we can work on it or find a different use for it.
We also accept donations of outdoor apparel. Name brands are our preference, but again, we will accept just about anything on donation. If we can't sell it, we'll find another way to make it useful.
We always need all sorts of things. Tools is a big one. We wear out a lot of tools. Bike tools in particular. Building supplies are helpful. We're always rearranging and finding better ways of organizing our workspace. Also, money to put towards these areas is extremely helpful (see photo of new tool arrival at right).
